Shrimp and oysters are almost synonomous with lowcountry. They are found on almost every restaurant menu and at almost any celebration in the area. The people that work in this industry are some of our most important essential workers. Mr. Fraser has painted the seafood shacks and oyster houses of the lowcountry for many years, this painting is from this spring just as the reality of quarantine was kicking in. Miss Cue calls Georgetown, S.C. her home and was most likely in Charleston getting some last minute repairs for the coming spring shrimp season. Notice Fort Sumter in the background.
